The car's at the dealer, having the EIBACH front & rear sway bars installed, along with the BEASTPOWER sway bar brackets.
The Eibach sway bars are sold under the brand name of TECHNIK, which is part of RENNSPORT of California. I purchased the sway bars from "Sam" very nice person to deal with, when doing a mail order purchase. These sway bars are exactly the same as the ACS sway bars, which are twice the price of the EIBACH brand name. Im glad I took this route for the sway bars.
The only thing guys, is that I realized today that this sway bar upgrade/mod winds up costing the customer a "G" note, when all is said and done! Lets break it down,
1. EIBACH sway bars $425.00 (includes shipping cost)
2. BEASTPOWER sway bar brackets $230.00 (includes shipping)
3. installation cost, 4 Hours @ $100.00 Hr = $400.00
Grand total is $1055.00 !!!!!!!!!!
Now my point and question is, for getting an additional 1mm increase in size, for both front and rear sway bars, is it worth spend approx. a grand for this upgrade????
Yes, I did it and I will evaluate the upgrade but I just went through the motions of buying the parts and doing the install job at the dealer, before realizing what I was actually getting (an additional 1mm size increase) for the amount of monies paid.
Yea, Im saying this at the risk of making myself sound stupid, but I honestly wanted to pose the above question of, is it really worth the money? Is this really a cost effective mod?
